"Happy TAX Day!" -------------------------------------------------------
"ByLine with Dan Betzer" Program #2226
Release Monday, April 15, 2002
REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION.
Happy Income Tax Day! I do not mind paying taxes at all. It is a privilege to live in this great country. I have traveled to over fifty countries and I will tell you, the red, white, and blue always looks awfully good to me!
Sometimes, in real affection, we like to kid our leadership. This dandy was sent in by a listener:
Once upon a time, the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said, "Someone might steal from it at night." So, they created a night watchman post and hired a guy. Then Congress said, "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?" So, they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions and one person to do time studies."
Then Congress said, "How will we know the night watchman is doing his tasks correctly?" So, they created a Quality Control department and hired two people: one to do the studies, and one to write the reports. Then Congress said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So, they created the following positions: a time keeper and a payroll officer, and hired two people.
Then Congress said, "Who will be accountable for all these people?" So, they created an administrative section and hired three people: an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer and a legal secretary. Then Congress said, "We have had this command operation for one year and we are $18,000 over budget. We must cut back overall costs."
So--you guessed it--they laid off the night watchman!
But in all seriousness, God bless this great country. Today, we must pay up.
